the police announced the capture. president obama then addressed the nation. >> boston police and state police and local police across the commonwealth of massachusetts responded with professionalism, and bravery over five long days. and tonight, because of their determined efforts, we've closed an important chapter in this tragedy. >> now, the other suspect that's dzhokhar's older brother, 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev was killed friday during a confrontation with police. authorities in boston suspended all mass transit friday and warned roughly 1 million people to stay indoors as the hunt for the remaining suspect played out. the brothers are the suspects in monday's marathon -- boston rather marathon bombings that killed three people and injured more than 180 others. the men are also suspected of killing an m.i.t. police officer while sitting in his vehicle friday night. let's go to watertown. nbc's luke russert is outside the hospital where the suspect is right now. good morning to you. take us through exactly how this 19-year-old suspect was caught? what are the details you've lear
you think, why you think this and they say they never got a response. >> the obama administration has okayed the suspension of the suspect's miranda rights. is that a temporary suspension? >> reporter: yes, by law it is. it's called the public safety exception to the miranda rule. normally you have to tell someone they have a right to remain silent and if you don't, then you can't use anything they tell you in court. so that's why the miranda warning is given. but there is an exception. you don't have to do it if there's a possible threat to public safety. and here obviously there's a concern about whether there are potential accomplices. investigators say they haven't found any. or other explosives. they say they haven't found any of those either but that's what they want to ask him. and this exception probably begins to expire the moment you invoke it so it's probably no good for more than a day or two but nonetheless they can do that. afterwards they'll have to give him his miranda warning and say whether he'll continue to answer questions. the justice department says even in very
years ago. where it gets complicated is that the obama administration a couple of years ago created the memo for the fbi that basically said not only do you have the immediate public safety exception where you think there's some sort of imminent threat, you know, you cannot read miranda rights and establish that but they said basically that if you -- you can continue to question, you should continue to question, without giving the miranda rights if you have any reason to suspect there's intelligence that can be gained and not related to any immediate threat. and it is a very sort of open-ended and ill-defined zmg a lot of people it seems think -- think this is sort of setting up maybe a court case that could emerge from this. >> yeah. i think that -- the public safety exception as contemplate bid the supreme court 30 years ago was extremely narrow and was meant to cover only sort of immediate exigent questions about some imminent threat. and the obama administration sort of unilaterally expanded it to permit sort of routine intelligence gathering beyond any kind of imminent requirem
is that we are not the nation we were in 2001. >> right. >> that president obama has come out asking our nation to stay true to unity and diversity, words we did not hear after 9/11. deval patrick, governor of massachusetts said if we're to heal as a nation, we need to turn to each other rather than on each other. inl going to hang on to that the next few months. >> nobody else had to have commercial this is week, but we do. we'll come back to you as soon as we're back from the break. this is for real this time. step seven point two one two. verify and lock. command is locked. five seconds. three, two, one. standing by for capture. the most innovative software on the planet... dragon is captured. is connecting today's leading companies to places beyond it. siemens. answers. bjorn earns unlimited rewards for his small business. take these bags to room 12 please.

investigators did there. >>> at the white house last night, after the capture, president obama applauded law enforcement officials, but said there's more work to do in the coming investigation. >> obviously tonight there's still many unanswered questions. among them -- why did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and our country resort to such violence? how did they plan and carry out these attacks, and did they receive any help. the families of those killed so senselessly deserve answers. the wounded, some of whom now have to learn how to stand and walk and live again deserve answers. >> so many questions at this point, including what was he doing in those 20 hours or so, and what do we know about how it came to this point. ron allen is at the hospital where the 19-year-old suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev is right now. and, of course, obviously the police, the investigators, want to talk to him. what do we know about his condition, ron? >> reporter: well, chris, we believe he is in serious condition. we know he suffered a lot of loss of blood during this ordeal. we kn
thoughts on that? >> i don't think that that's going to happen. the obama administration has been clear, they're distancing themselves from that concept. you've got an american citizen. we don't have dzhokhar going abroad in training. his brother apparently did. but dzhokhar didn't. and dzhokhar is going to be tried as an individual on his own right. so i think the chances of this ending up as an enemy combatant are very small. >> but you've heard that because of high security concerns they would like to question him for a period of time, albeit briefly, before mirandizing him and reading him his rights. how long can they do that? how far can they go with those questions? >> well, that's a very good question. because the longer we go, the less likely there is that there's a public security issue here. one thing that the defense will certainly raise is the remarks of the police chief of watertown in which he said these are the only two guys, we're done. now the argument from the government will be well, he wasn't informed. but, you know, that's going to be played out pretty significantly
